Effortless Summer Glow


Hey everyone, so this is my first make-up article. I know a lot of you guys have been asking me how I get my summer glow and I have all of m secrets to spill with you guys today. There are so many miracle products that can totally transform and enhance your inner golden goddess!

This is me with the finished look and I will show you guys how to get this look!


These products are vital. I find that Nars products work really well and are extremely pigmented. However, they are a bit pricey but trust me they are worth it. Nars has also came out with some brilliant highlighters that are insanely good. In my makeup look I am using "Orgasm" and it really highlights and adds shimmer to the skin. On my cheekbones I always use a bit of the Orgasm illuminator and Nars highlighter blush in the color " Albatross". When doing such a natural look, I prefer to keep my eyes simple. So all I do is wear some Mascara ( I always use Telescopic by L'Oreal) and just line my top lid. 

Step 1: Prime your face. I use the Revlon Photo Ready primer and it is truly great because it is inexpensive and really works. It is a color corrector so it corrects my skin tone and makes me not need a heavy foundation.

Step 2: Foundation. During the summer I don't like to wear foundation just because it cakes and makes me feel gross and sweaty and it just doesn't work. BB Creams are the best way to go. I like to use Dr. Jart's BB Cream because you can get a small bottle for $18 and it lasts a while and it is SUCH GOOD QUALITY! Then, I use Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the color Honey and it cancels out all of my Green under eye tones. 

Step 3: Next, I add highlighters. Now Nars is the BEST when it comes to highlighters. All of their highlighters are so well pigmented and look beautiful on the skin. The two that I am using in this photo is Albatross, Highlighting Blush and Orgasm, and illuminator. Albatross is in a powder form meanwhile, Orgasm is in a liquid form (mixing them together is AMAZING). 

Step 4: Add the blush: I use a palette from Elf that is $3 and let me tell you... it is great! It works just as good as all of my more expensive blushes. I use it in the color St. Lucia and you can get it here. (It is the best $3 blush...ever).

Step 5: Lips: So I use more than one lipstick in this look. I use Made to Last (MAC) and Shy Girl (MAC).

Step 6: Just put on some Mascara and line your top lid and you are good to go!

Hope you enjoyed this little makeup tutorial and please comment if you want more makeup looks!

Trend Alert: Infinity Scarves & quotes

Scarfs are a mere obsession of mine. I love all of the pretty color and bold prints that they come in (plus they are super cozy and fun to snuggle in). So I have been so incredibly captivated by the idea of the lovely infinite scarf.
Infinite Scarf

Where you can get the good ones (psst don't tell anyone):
  • -For those of you who are willing to spend a reasonable amount on an infinity scarf I would highly recommended some scarves from the lovely shopbop.com. This Theodora & Callum leopard scarf is so darling. It is ombre printed as well which is so funky and eccentric.
  •  I love to go back to the basics. This Bop Basics scarf is super simple and chic at the same time. I would pair this with a fun bold top so it would be a good contrast. 

Check them out and let me know what you think!!

Hair to Die For

All of us girls want that long wispy hair that will make all the boys go wild. I have a hair obsession my hair always needs to be long. I secretly want to die it purple/ombre pink but I think I will just leave it medium brown. I do also like that super blonde hipster bun it looks so chic!

The Glitter Update

        I apologize that I haven't been posting articles since Tuesday but I have no power due to hurricane sandy. This storm has been crazy most of NY is left without power and the lines to buy food is crazy so it has been an insane weekend for me. I would like to thanks all of my followers who e-mailed and texted me (love ya guys ).

           Today I wanted to focus on the main concept of my blog which is glitter! I love glitter as you all know and I wanted to share with you guys some sick ways you can incorporate glitter in you looks. This spiked glitter leopard shoe has been my absolute obsession! I can't seem to find it anywhere though which sucks. I found some other sick shoes here, here, here(my favorite!!) and here(the cutest little boots!!). Let me know what you think of those (even if you hate them). 
Now the pictures you have been waiting for...
